amendment at all, these workers ought to be protected. if the labor laws have any meaning at all, these workers deserve to be protected. ed, let me just say win other thing. because it's a background condition. these plutocrats, these bullying billionaires, what they are worried about is a slight hike in their taxes, maybe back to what it was during bill clinton's era. but you know, barack obama not only bailed out wall street, even though wall street is now all running in romney's direction. barack obama got the stock market back. now the dow jones industrial average is almost back to what it was before. barack obama made sure that the economy was so healthy that 93% of the benefits of this recovery so far have gone to the top 1%. and yet, these are the people in the top 1/10 of 1%, the top 1/100 of 1%, these are the people saying, we don't want to be taxed and we're going to take it out on our employees. well, if anybody has declared class warfare, it's these guys. >> no doubt. robert reich, glad to have you on "the ed show." >>> coming up, the mother of a former navy s.e.a.l. killed

that a president romney has no intention of living with a law that was settled by the supreme court in 1973. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life for from their faith. the policy of a romney administration is to oppose abortion with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. we don't think that unelected judges should make this decision. >> as for vice president biden and the president himself, turns out they still believe in separation of church and state. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life, but i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians and muslims and jews. i just refuse to impose that on others. >> joining us now, julian epstein is a democratic strategist and former chief minority counsel to the house judiciary committee and maria teresa kumar is president and ceo of voter latino. julian, it is breathtaking to observe mr. ryan at work. he breezes past the constitutional separation of church and state, and if that wasn't astonishing enough, he then argued that

freedom and opportunity and the right to live under laws of our own making. it's a struggle that's been unfolded under green banners in the streets of iran, in the public squares of tunisia and egypt and yemen and in the fights for liberty in iraq and afghanistan and libya. and now in syria. in short, it's a struggle between liberty and tyranny, justice and oppression, hope and despa despair. we've seen this struggle before. it is familiar to general george marshall. in his time, actions of world war was torn between democracy and despotism. we had leaders of courage and vision, both republicans and democrats, who knew that america had to support friends who shared our values and prevent today's crisis of tomorrow's conflicts. statesmen like marshall rallied the nation to rise to the responsibilities as the leader of the free world. we helped our friends to build and sustain free societies and free markets. we defended the friends and ourselves from our common enemies. we led. we led and though the path was long and uncertain, the thought of war in europe is as inconceivable today as it

against their crede. i think the law does that. but i thought they were both pretty good on that. i think this election is still about economics and in the first instance and then foreign policy and i thought vice president -- i thought -- i almost said vice president ryan. congressman ryan did a great job in explaining governor romney's position on those. i also think that -- >> go ahead. >> avoided mistakes and the vice president didn't. his statements on benghazi as you've been covering andrea, are going to be an ongoing problem for the administration. they really just enhanced the contradictions in the administration's policy. >> there were other issues for paul ryan, though, when it came to medicare and tax policy that have been questioned. what about the differences over medicare, health care? he said that there were no -- that there was no study, no statistics that show increased costs in ryan one in the first medicare proposal which the congressional budget office says is not the case. ryan two is another issue. they were debating ryan one. do you think this is going to be a

law as a giveaway to special interest groups. vice president biden had prepared a response to that one. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he -- >> you did ask for stimulus money? >> won it occasions. we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. that's what we do. >> i love that. i love that. this is such a bad program, and he writes me a letter saying the reason we need this stimulus, it will create growth and jobs. his words. i wish he would just tell -- be a little more candid. >> unlike last week's presidential debate, tonight's debate did include some discussion of women's health issues, specifically each side's stance on abortion. >> if the romney/ryan ticket, if those that believe abortion should remain legal be worried? >> we don't think that unelected judges should make this decision that people, through their elected representatives and reaching a con

massively, massively destructive, and yet it seems that after it all happens, we passed some laws, some stuff happens in the background and that's when the lobbyists come in and that's when all the people who can wield their supposed expertise has this powerful tool to destroy attempts to reign in the banks. if you're home watching and feel like we're throwing around terms, i'll explain them. this stuff is understandable, it really is. it's really, really vitally important. alexis. >> i wanted to mention that mitt romney says he wants more transparency, leverage limits. i was excited to hear that but i was confused. when people talk about transparency in relationship to the dodd-frank, it's about plus rules. plus execution facilities which are like exchanges where derivatives are supposed to get more transparency. the republicans in the house and the senate have been making themselves very busy trying to gut those rules. this is something i debated on the show. there's a couple of different bills. but what mitt romney said that he wants transparency, he's not consistent with what he see

result had a miscarriage, she could be charged with negligent homicide under this law. certain kinds of contraception would be illegal under this law. women who had abortion would be murderers under this law. that is the sort of thinking that animates paul ryan. >> well, the other reason, and this is something i know they never thought of and i'm kidding because it's so unreal, if you're here without papers, you're an illegal immigrant and you're in the country and you get pregnant. that pregnancy is a person under the 14th amendment and certainly can't be taken out of the country. they're a citizen of the united states. you can't leave. so if you don't want to get thrown out of the country, get pregnant. auto they can't even move you without violating the 14th amendment rights of life, liberty, and property of the fertilized egg. this is how unthinking i think they are within their own prejudicial map they try to figure out. >> massive hypocrisy and short-term thinking has characterizing almost all of the thinking around women and their bodies. all of this stuff, whether it's defunding
